think germany has done what was necessary to al w allow -- to make it clear that the euro is here to stay, and that's been a tremendous relief for the markets. so calm has returned. the european banking system, the interbank market, has revived so there's a general sense of let's say almost euphoria that the crisis is over. i think that is somewhat premature. because the fundamental internal inconsistencies in the dis-tim have not been addressed, and actually, therefore, you face political dangers. the euro is transforming the european union into something very different from the original conception which was a voluntary association of equal states, and instead of that, the financial created a two-class system where the euro, the creditors and debtors and the creditors are in charge. the political situation i think is going to get worse. i think the next year, next two years perhaps, are going to be very cuffy if the european union survives forever. i don't think europe can live politically with are a situation where there's are a center, namely germany, and countries like italy a
